Window width bug in finch when not using 80-character width

Reported by: ehpt27 Owned by: sadrul
Milestone: Component: finch (gnt/ncurses)
Version: 2.7.1 Keywords: finch window width

Description (last modified by ehpt27)

There appears to be a bug relating to how finch deals with chat windows that are larger or smaller than 80 characters wide.

If the window is expanded past 80 characters, the window border moves as it should, but the actual text within the window (as well as the line wrap marker characters) only moves one character larger for every two characters of width added. When using a large width like 140 wide, this means there is a large unused empty space at the right of the window that is 30 characters wide.

If the window used is less than 80 characters, the window is only shrunk by one character every two characters that should be moved, and the right hand border of the window disappears and reappears every other press of the key to move the size. The underscore area seems to be made shorter by the "right" size, so it ends up not being as wide as the window is.

If finch is restarted, the chat windows that are set to autojoin that had been wider than 80 characters have now (after the restart) been changed to be only 80 characters wide, which then requires manual resizing to make right again.
